Ok. Thanks for your attention and patience.

Because --with-colons is not for humans.
The specification says that the output is utf-8.
Haveing this variable would add an additional burden
to each consumer of --with-colons output to convert it.
Ok. I see.

Why? Why not to use --charset to set encoding? Why escaping is needed if this
mode (with-colons) is not appointed to diplay( isn't it?) but to get keys
information to applications?
